The purpose of the study was to determine the effect(s) of school leadership styles on student achievement at the lower secondary level in seven countries and was part of the European Union’s Leadership Improvement for Student Achievement (LISA) project. The study was done because the relationship between school leadership and school effectiveness – especially student outcomes – remains disputed.
